Morning Routine

This New Years started off on a great note. I decided for myself, no resolution this year! This year, I am simply going to be the person I want to be. So far, so good. Starting on January 1st, I was up and adam. I went for a nice walk, spent the day with the family. Played in the pasture and groomed on the horses. The day was amazing. The 2nd day was just as good. So far, everyday since the new year, I have worked out, worked on my writing, had fun with my family, worked my horses, so on and so on. School started back on the 6th and it was just as great. I was so excited about the start of our New Year. My husband and I were both up early, I got my morning quiet time for coffee and my devotion. The kids got up when I woke them without a fight, ate breakfast, got dressed, and the best part……WE LEFT FOR SCHOOL ON TIME! Without the screaming and fussing, blah blah blah. This how the first 2 days back to school went. But then, on the third day, something happened. I heard my son talking non stop to my husband as he quietly told him to please go back to sleep, its too early for him to be up. I looked at the clock. It’s only 5…… why is he up??? I need my morning quiet time so my day will run smooth. My alarm goes off at 5:30, I sneak to the bathroom to start my shower….. “GOOD MORNING MOMMY!”. Oh no, he’s still not suppose to be up yet. I sweetly say “Good morning darling, please go back and lay down, it’s too early for you to be awake”. I get out of the shower and try to continue on with my quiet time routine. I put on my robe and go to the kitchen for coffee. Oh no…..They’re both awake! “Mommy, can you make my cereal now?”…. Not good, we are getting out of the routine, I like routines. Breakfast doesn’t come until after my morning devotional… Oh well, here’s some cereal. I go sit in my quiet place with my devotion book and start to read. “MOM! I NEED MORE CEREAL!” This is not looking good folks, could my whole morning routine be ruined now. Did we just go downhill that fast! It was all going so well! What did we do wrong??? You see, here is our normal routine. I get up, take a shower, make a cup of coffee, read my devotional, wake the kids, get their clothes out, get dressed while they are getting dressed and waking up, make their breakfast, do my makeup while they are eating their breakfast, then make lunches, brush their teeth and hair then out the door. We are totally off that now! I haven’t even gotten dressed yet. What type of day are we going to have now??? I will tell you what type of day we are going to have….. the same as every other day. We still made it out of the house on time, we still got to school on time in good spirits, I still got everything I needed to get done today. So, my morning didn’t go as planned. Big deal, I wasn’t going to let it ruin my day. We try to plan out every aspect of our lives and if something doesn’t go right it ruins the whole day. Well I hate to break it to ya, our days and lives are already planned out for us. So just remember, it might not go as you planned, but it’s going the way it is suppose to. Everything happens for a reason. It’s just how you decide to handle it. Don’t let it ruin you’re whole day. Just go with the flow and it will all work out! God Bless!
